You know when...

You know when you click on the obvious multiple times and nothing happens? Then you click on the hint and it shows you to do what you've been doing. Yep.

Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack
 – 

Stellaris adds yet more to the game

As is typical with Paradox games you get only the frame with the base game, then the flush out and put the remaining pieces together through DLC expansions and DLC content packs, thankfully here they didn't do that. As with all new things for Stellaris this DLC helps to add new features to a great game. As always look for it on sale and then add to your base game with this.

Stellaris
 – 

Space Empire Deluxe evolved into Stellaris

I am sure we all remember the great Space Empires Deluxe IV, the king of the 4x strategy games in space. That game had everything you could think of and thensome. With Paradox's release they are trying to capture what was lost in updated versions of SED V. It tries to give a more updated feel in the management of your space empire. Stellaris doesn't feel like every menu option is running at a slower speed or ancient dos like responses. The base game gives you all you need to start playing this game and learning the basic rules. As with any Paradox game some features are missing or are not fully fleshed out.

The reason for the game lacking some features you might have got with SEIV Deluxe is because Paradox likes to supply you essentially the base game and then add new features as DLC or to help fill in features the base game doesn't really explore fully.

If you have like games like Master of Orion or Space Empires Deluxe (before Strategy First took over the license) you will love this game and the future it holds. While I dislike Paradox's method of completing their games, you can bet there will be more civilizations and of course rules that are expanded upon and added to the game over the next 2-4 years before Stellaris II will be announced. So I can't recommend the game without that warning, other than the numerous DLC content that will be coming, the game without new additions is a really great way to relive the past 4x games.

Whispered Secrets: Enfant Terrible Collector's Edition
 – 

Wonderful graphics, storyline

This game is really good for new or medium Hidden Object players. I found it fairly easy, although I did get stumped a few times. The hidden object scenes are really almost too easy, although I did play on the easiest setting. Some of the puzzles can be played at hard or easy as you get to them, which is the first game like this I've encountered. Enjoyed the game . Plenty of game play. You won't go wrong with this one.

Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition
 – 

Best Crusader Kings game

Crusader Kings 3 is a true successor to the critically acclaimed Crusader Kings 2. CK3 is the most polished game released by Paradox game so far and very playable in it's current state. The game has really nice 3D animations for all the in-game characters. A lot of the CK2 features have been brought to CK3 but some of them are still missing, like items.

I can recommend this game to anyone who played and like CK2. This is the new gold standard in grand strategy games! 5/5!

Amaranthine Voyage: Legacy of the Guardians
 – 

Fun and challenging

I usually rely on ratings to purchase games. Although this had no ratings, I bought it on a whim and I'm not sorry. The story line is fun, there are some unexpected twists and turns to it, the graphics are clear . I've played this one four or five times now and I still find it a great game.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Season Pass
 – 

More content for a great old school RPG

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Obsidian Edition
 – 

Superb continuation!

A classic rpg with real time combat, and recentlly added a turnbased version as well. PoEII starts off where PoE left off. Your progress of the original has its consequences in part 2

Excellent!

Football Manager 2021
 – 

Best FM Yet

This years FM game has some much improved UI functionality both in and out of match time. The new interactions feel a little more alive than previous ones, although not perfect, a definite improvement over the previous system, particularly with press conferences. The match engine itself is a lot more realistic which improves the overall immersive factor of the title, last years version had a lot of very strange goals that made it feel very much like a game. If you're an FM fan or haven't picked up an FM in a while it is definitely worth the upgrade.

Crusader Kings III
 – 

More user friendly

So far this gaming is shaping up to be at least as much fun as CK 2, but a lot more user friendly.
The game is all about finding your own fun in a vast medieval sandbox.

The Lost Labyrinth
 – 

Fun gameplay

I enjoyed playing this game — it had all the challenges I expected without being too hard. The graphics were a ltitle strange and the dialogue skippable, but since I was there for the match 3 puzzles, it wasn't a big deal. Worth the price!

Rescue Team 11: Planet Savers
 – 

Engaging!

Just the right level of challenge even on relaxed mode to make you think about your time management and then you can kick it up to expert mode for more of a challenge. Definitely appreciate the improved graphics of the last 3 in the series as well! Nice and straightforward game with no side games to have to do to advance either.

This is an awesome simulator. This is what Sim City (2013) should have been.
